Finished in 1948, the Concerto for Trumpet and Orchestra was composed by Henri Tomasi (1901-1971) and lasts approximately 15 minutes.
Dedicated to the Trumpeter Ludovic Vaillant, soloist at the National Orchestra, the Concerto for Trumpet and Orchestra was premiered in Paris in 1949.
The first part, which lasts 7 minutes, Allegro and Cadenza, begins with a Trumpet cadenza and a quiet Snare Drum background. The Nocturne follows as the second part of this Concerto by Tomasi and the Finale, the shortest part of the concerto, ends up with a cheerful cartoon-music theme.
